Who Do You Choose
Since I choose Jesus. It just stands to reason, that I must also choose the things that He stands for, the things He teaches and the things He loves. In the Bible, there was basically two kind of people that followed after Jesus. There were those who wanted to see the glory of God. They wanted to hear the majesty of God’s Word revealed in flesh and to feel His blessings. They wanted to see the miraculous performed for others and even get a little for themselves. This was the majority of the people who came to see Jesus.
There was another kind of people that followed Jesus. They just wanted to be as close to Him as they could get. They loved Him, not for what He could do for them, but because of His very self. They loved HIM. They wanted to please Him. They wanted to hear HIM. They wanted to be near HIM. They wanted to be like HIM.
Today, on this very day in which we live, we also fit into one of those two categories of people. We are either wanting to be close to the blessings of God or we are wanting to be close to the God of the blessings. The way we behave indicates our choice as to which category we fit.
I choose Jesus… And Jesus LOVES His church.
